Goblin Cookies

It’s almost Halloween. I saw a recipe on Pioneer Woman for monster cookies and thought they looked delicious. I’ve read that monster cookies are supposed to have peanut butter and you omit the flour. I altered the monster cookie recipe and changed the name to goblin cookies. All the little chips and M & M’s looks like spooky goblin eyes watching you!


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla 
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup quick cook oats
  • 1 cup regular oats
  • 1 cup M & M’s
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2-1/2 cups Rice Krispies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream butter with sugars until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and kosher salt to bowl and mix till combined. Next add in oats, followed by M & M’s and chocolate chips.
  4. Add Rice Krispies at the very end, mixing until just combined, being careful not to over mix. 
  5. Use a cookie scoop to scoop heaping balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes, then allow to cool on a rack.

It’s Sweetest Day, so I thought I’d make my husband a breakfast bake. His favorite meal of the day is breakfast, so this was perfect. I found a recipe on Betty Crocker‘s website.

Makes 12 servings


  • 2 packages (12 oz each) bulk pork sausage
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1 cup Original Bisquick® mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 eggs


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Cook sausage, bell pepper and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir together sausage mixture, potatoes and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese in baking dish.
  2. Stir Bisquick mix, milk, pepper and eggs until blended. Pour into baking dish.
  3. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until cheese is melted. Cool 5 minutes.


* If you’d rather make a smaller recipe using a 9-inch pie plate, cut all ingredient amounts in half and bake 30 to 35 minutes.
